07 Nov Los Padres Foundation – Puerto Rico
Lillian and I along with the Los Padres Foundation are ecstatic with this opportunity to collaborate with both WWST and the University of Puerto Rico (UPR) to bring clean drinking water to the people of Puerto Rico most impacted by these devastating hurricanes. - Edgar Rios - Founder of Los Padres Foundation
The water piping system prior to Hurricane Maria was in serious need of funding as the pipes have grown old and have eroded. Locals were already having issues with drinking contaminated water, sadly they are accustom to the poor conditions. Since Hurricane Maria barreled through the island over a year ago, power has returned for most of the island, but delivering reliable clean water is still a major issue on the island, one that will not go away anytime soon. Fortunately, the Los Padres Foundation and the University of Puerto Rico have purchased multiple Mobile MaxPure™ units to provide continuous, clean water and power to locals on the island. The solar-driven, reverse osmosis system will provide long-term benefits to the people of Humacao, additionally one unit will be used as a teaching instrument for the engineering students at the University campus.
